Hunting with Dogs: Ban — 18 Mar 2002 at 22:14

Wayne David MP, Caerphilly voted with the majority (Aye).

The Aye-voters passed the motion:

That this House considers that the hunting of wild mammals with dogs should be prohibited in accordance with provision similar to Schedule 3 to the Hunting Bill as introduced in the Commons last Session [Bill 2].-[Alun Michael.]
